To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Nothing new here, he is just coming from a military angle, mostly self-congratulatory talk and his usual foul mouthed language. Do these guys really speak and even write like that in their private life too? Not cool! I thought it's just to show off on tv. Ah well. On the plus side he is honest and not afraid to point out his own shortcomings which makes him appear more human despite his huge ego and alpha male affectation. I'm sure he is a nice guy but, from what I have read, his wife deserves a medal. Anyway, all in all a disappointing read. Sadly I didn't find this book inspiring.
I had great hopes for this book and from the reviews most people seem to think it is amazing. I started off in the same way finding it quite inspiring until I didn't. I think for me it started to turn sour around the chapter on how to parent and went down hill from there. I gave up about 3/4 through as the self sanctimonious and pretty bitter tone was making me cross.
